Get ready for an even bigger and better Apollo Virtual Concert – via YouTube live and with a THEME for the first time 🤩
💻 Apollo On Screen 💻 is centred around all screens: the big movie screen, the small tv screen, even the screen of your computer or phone. Prepare to be transported to the universes of your favourite films, series, games, and more!
Although the event is free, we will still be encouraging donations to our chosen charity for this semester – Support Act. This is Australia’s only crisis-relief charity for artists, crew and music workers, as a result of ill health, injury, a mental health problem, or some other crisis that impacts on their ability to work in music.

*SUBMISSION FORM AT BOTTOM OF DESCRIPTION*

Thanks to our pal COVID-19, university students everywhere are forced to box up their creativity and succumb to a life of lockdown. Now, the closest we can get to live entertainment is a feed full of miscellaneous TikToks. Not a vibe.

We know y’all are talented and we KNOW y’all want some free goodies. So, we’re giving you an event that’ll get you back on your creative game and could make you a little richer… UMSU Activities’ first-ever, all online TALENT SHOW!!

So, how can you participate in this competition? How does it all work? What kind of content are we accepting? Check out the highlights below:

🚨 Submissions will be open from MONDAY 3RD AUGUST until FRIDAY 11TH SEPTEMBER 🚨. Between these dates, all you’ve gotta do is film yourself and your 5 minute or less talent*, upload it to our nifty form** linked below and stay tuned. Entering a competition has never been easier!

🚨 Winners will be announced on the 17TH SEPTEMBER 🚨, with selected acts invited to perform live. This will give you the chance to see some incredible real-time talent from your own peers, and who knows: maybe your friends will be watching you on the main stage?

*Talent can be literally anything you want, so long as it’s under 5 mins. Make us laugh pls we are bored, thank you in advance !!

Bust out of that winter slump and get ready to have the most fire night of your life as UMSU WinterFest 2019 presents Jack River and Greta Ray live at Union House.

Alt-pop force Jack River is on a hot-streak having released her debut album Sugar Mountain to widespread critical acclaim, played countless sold out shows and scored three ARIA nominations, the genre-hopping pop genius behind the likes of “Sugar”, “Confess”, “Fools Gold” and “Adolescent” brings her stellar live show to North Court for one night only, bringing the precocious Gretta Ray with her.

Singer-songwriter Gretta Ray’s breathtaking vocals and intriguing way of combining lyrical complexities that express personal feelings of love and heartache, with tongue-in-cheek facetious anecdotes has made her a household name at just 21 years of age. The triple J Unearthed High and Vanda and Young songwriting award winner responsible for penning instant classics “Drive”, “Radio Silence” and “Time” will leave you spellbound setting the perfect tone for a truly memorable night.

Don’t miss the most fire night of winter.
